Question about 2007 HM CRE F490X I
I'm at my wits end with this bike now! Laughing The bike had sat for a quite a few months during the winter season. I intended to ride it
But somehow never managed to. So now I am trying to sell the thing and I can't get it to run. It ran like a champ before it sat. If it sits for a while it will run for 30 seconds or so and then sputter and die. Then it won't start for a while but turns over strong. I figure it has to be a fuel issue. I put some fuel stabilizer and cleaner into the tank; no dice. I pulled the tank, drained it, put new fuel in it, pulled the carb, sprayed it out good, put it all back together and...still the same. Not sure I have the tools/skill to completely disassemble the carb and soak it. Confused Any ideas of where to go from here? This thing isn't worth much to begin with and probably not worth anything if not running! I can't spend the money on a mechanic to fix it because that would pretty much defeat the purpose of selling it! ,have you checked the air filter? another problem might be a clogged tank vent. try running the bike with the gas cap open and see if that works.,,,
